Paper Title:
Topological Optimum Design Considering Stress Constraint Using Approximate Function
  Abstract

This paper presents an integrated process of structural topology optimization in minimizing both compliance and structural weight. The material volume fraction acts an additional design variable subjected to the empirical approximate stress constraint in terms of material volume fraction. This explicitly approximate function can provide a convenient way to calculate its gradient information for numerical optimization. An engineer does not require advanced topology optimization and superior finite element technique in applying proposed method.
